 Check out these teachers coming to Calico Mermaid:

Judy Sisneros, 
quilt designer, teacher & author, will be here Saturday, February 7 to teach Circle Pizzazz. Her goal as a teacher is that each student go away happy, with a unique quilt - not a copy of everybody else's in the workshop. Her books continue to be best sellers.

Jean Impey
will be here April 18 from Southern California to 
share her passion for quilting with all levels of quilters. She uses a wide variety of techniques with incredible results.

 Marjan Kluepfel,  
fabric artist & quilt teacher will be here May 16.
She uses fabric and thread as her medium instead of paper and paint....and a sewing machine instead of a brush.
She grew up in the Netherlands, & has lived & taught around the world. She is now at home in Northern California.

Let's make it happen!

Lynne Pillus-The Mechanical Quilt

We truly enjoyed Lynne's visit to Calico Mermaid! 
It was so exciting to have a designer of her caliber teach in our shop.


She & her husband Dan had a lovely meal at our favorite local restaurant, 
El Tapatio!

Then Saturday she got down to the nuts & bolts of teaching her technique.

 The fabric was sorted according to value - because "Color doesn't count."
